Divergent Fates and other worlds

Sarah Wright has experienced no shortage of stressful situations since becoming a vampire, but she’s about to face the most terrifying one yet—being the adult in the room.

Nine months into undeath, Sarah’s found her stride. She’s comfortable in her fangs, managing family and school, and relatively content. Treating her parents to a weeklong vacation in Iceland sounded like an awesome idea back in December, but the reality of being responsible for her siblings while they’re away is terrifying. She’d be less afraid of a twelve-foot-tall troll.

Wait… only a dream. Magic portals aren’t real. Right?

The first few days playing mom give her weak hope she might not screw things up too bad. All seems manageable until the local vampires come calling. Her probationary period is over. Time to become official. Arthur Wolent couldn’t have picked a worse time to send her on an errand.

It’s only a simple delivery—to Southern California—while her siblings are home without parents. What could go wrong?

Kirsten Wren’s job has gone back to normal—ghosts are killing people again.

After twenty-three rough years, Fate seems to be giving her a break. Her adopted son is happy. The new—well, first—boyfriend is doing everything right… and she hasn’t seen a single demon in a few months. In 2419, West City is a violent place filled with poverty, overcrowding, and augmented cyber-gangs. No surprise vengeful spirits are everywhere.

Compared to creatures of the Abyss, however, angry ghosts are like old friends.

An unusual spike in hostile manifestations suggests something out there is stirring up spirits. Initially benign events rapidly become deadly. As the only Astral Sensitive the National Police Force has on the West Coast, Kirsten might be in over her head.

The incidents continue at an overwhelming pace. Responding to so many hauntings leaves little time to find the cause of the ghosts’ agitation, but if she doesn’t do something soon… the city will descend into spectral chaos.

Nine-year-old Kelly Donovan helped save the world from aliens, but now she has an even bigger problem—someone’s trying to ruin Halloween.

Life is difficult for the world’s tiniest superhero. Her genius plan to save her parents from supervillainy in one easy step proved impossible… at least not without destroying the Earth. Superpowers, good or bad, aren’t going away any time soon. Mom’s as likely to hug her as trick her into a ridiculous trap, but at least her dad’s mellowed out a bit. Lately, he seems focused more on being weird than evil.

Small favors.

Kelly’s looking forward to the happy normal of trick-or-treating… until candy starts disappearing. Convinced a mysterious supervillain is responsible, she and her best—only—friend Paige rush to stop all the sweets in the world from evaporating. Alas, with only a week left and zero clues, humanity will likely suffer an even worse fate than enslavement by an alien race: the end of all Halloweens.
